Two-day summit – North America’s premier policy conference for bitcoin, crypto and blockchain – featured over 90 speakers and nearly 1,000 attendees
AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, Nov. 18, 2022/EINPresswire.com/ — Day two of the Texas Blockchain Summit, North America’s premier policy conference for the bitcoin, crypto and blockchain ecosystem, featured leading voices from industry in the policy, regulatory and legislative fields, who addressed the crowd of nearly 1,000 people less than a mile from the Texas State Capitol.
“Regulatory and policy work continues to be important to our economic development,” said Lee Bratcher, Founder and Chairman of the Texas Blockchain Council. “Developing light regulatory frameworks that protect consumers and clarify businesses will help us grow smarter and faster.”
Legislative, political and regulatory leaders from both sides of the aisle, including Andrew Yang, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, CFTC Commissioner Summer Mersinger, Texas State Senators Angela Paxton and Royce West, and representatives from Texas State’s Tan Parker (Sen.-Elect), Gio Capriglione and John Bucy provided attendees with thought-provoking and unprecedented ideas on the political front. Senator Paxton and Rep. Parker drafted legislation – HB 4474 – during the 87th Texas Legislative Session that recognizes cryptocurrency. The Virtual Currency Bill, recognizing the legal status of virtual currencies, was signed into law last June by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, thanks in large part to the efforts of the Texas Blockchain Council and the legislative champions who support it. The act amends the Texas Uniform Commercial Code to provide infrastructure for business laws surrounding blockchain and digital assets. In addition, this decision formally defines virtual currencies and provides individuals and businesses with a legal framework for the investment and custody of cryptocurrencies.
“More than any other state, Texas provides leadership in the blockchain space,” Bratcher said.
The first day of the summit featured industry awards including Journalist of the Year Mackenzie Sigalos, Technology Journalist for CNBC, Legislator of the Year, Texas Senator Angela Paxton, and Educator of the Year Kristine Cranley, Director of Business Development for PM Squared Financial.
The summit is presented by the Texas Blockchain Council, most widely recognized for its mission to make Texas a leader in blockchain and bitcoin innovation. In addition to the dynamic lineup of speakers, the Summit provided attendees with the unparalleled opportunity to network with industry leaders and sponsors from all facets of the burgeoning industry.

“The Texas Blockchain Summit brings together policymakers, media, influencers and bitcoin miners for the most compelling integration of the Texas-focused conversation to be found in the cryptocurrency space,” Bratcher continued.
